IronKey Response

IronKey security analysts have reviewed the vulnerability and research reports.

IronKey devices are NOT vulnerable to this serious security design flaw.

We've posted a detailed analysis of the vulnerability, and a description of how IronKey devices defend against it, on our website, at https://www.ironkey.com/usb-flash-drive-flaw-exposed

I have also posted a discussion of how these devices could have received the prestigious FIPS 140-2 Level 2 security validation from NIST, yet still have this major security design flaw.

We welcome your questions and comments on these issues.
